Denmark-based Færch Plast A/S announced plans to expand internationally into Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, Canada, South Africa, Israel and the United Faerch CPET trayStates.

One of Europe’s leading manufacturers of high-performance plastic packaging for the food industry, Faerch Plast’s expansion plans include its core range of dual ovenable CPET (crystalline polyethylene terephthalate) containers for frozen and chilled convenience meals. Offering a wide temperature tolerance from -40°F to 428°F for freezer-to-oven or microwave convenience, CPET eliminates negative effects on food flavor and aroma for enhanced on-shelf appeal and product differentiation.

Faerch Plast will also introduce containers produced from its MAPET II mono material into the untapped territories. Specially designed for the top sealing of fresh meat, poultry and fish, these packs offer the same properties as multi-layer materials, but are said to be more secure and environmentally friendly than non-recyclable laminates.

“This international expansion is a key part of Faerch Plast’s strategic growth plan. The company has established an excellenttrack record over the past 46 years and created an impressive customer base working with most of the leading food manufacturers, processors and packers in Europe,” says Joe Iannindardo, sales director for overseas markets. “We have an unrivalled reputation as a market leader in CPET containers for the European frozen and chilled convenience food industry, and we are looking forward to establishing and working with a network of highly reputable distributors to replicate this success across the rest of the world.”
